This is on my 6 month old female German's belly. It wasn't here yesterday I believe no more than a few though. What does it look like to anyone else?! She's the runt of her liter and has gotten two eye infections on top of other miscellaneous health issues.

Looks like a bug bite because of the "spot" in the middle (the actual
BITE, and swelling around) and how fast it appeared.

I'm in agreement. Looks like insect. Hopefully not a spider bite.

My first guess when I first saw it was ringworm. Just because of the circle around it. Has she been around other animals of any kind lately? I may be completely wrong, but anytime I see a round border like that, I see ringworm lol. Maybe since I worked at a vet previously and it seemed like an epidemic during that time.

oh wait, after a second look, i cannot tell if it's raised or not. If it is raised like a bump, then I'd go with insect bite. If it's flat, I'd say ringworm.

Our pups can just get skin infections from an irritation and moisture. Always get to a vet to confirm things.

Otherwise keeping the area dry (Gold Bond Powder can help) and maybe trimming the hair around the area can help.

She's just around our 3 other dogs. I'm thinking a bug bite too. They were outside playing the last two days since it has been great weather! I'm keeping an eye on it to see if it progresses. I at first thought it was ringworm but the spot in the middle. Thanks everyone!
